La Perla bar and Grill
28 Maiden Lane, London WC2E 7JS, United Kingdom
This restaurant has a mariner look to the inside with fish and mermaid murals on the walls but serves up some pretty awesome Mexican cuisine. The menu items that stick out are definitely the chorizo starter and pico sour. This restaurant also offer drinks in the form of tequila and cocktails which is probably more popular than the food itself. La Perla Bar and Grill has happy hour from 4-7 everyday where they charge on 4 pounds per drink.
While you’re there you should try the steak fajitas with peppercorn sauce, quesadillas especiales, spicy duck quesadillas and Mexican chicken wings— you won’t be sorry.
